Michael Berger - A Hysteria

  • Austria
Audio Tracks 

The subject of the film, Austrian investment banker Michael Berger, who became a dollar millionaire through a risky hedge fund, remains a chimera - an absent individual who also cannot be captured through his crime. There is not even a single picture of him to see, and all that is left of his influence are the impressive sums that are actually missing from the local banks at some time. In six attempts, the film tries to draw together a case from the traces of Michael Berger’s undertakings.

English and German subtitles are available for download only in DVD format.
